Sutherland Springs, Santa Fe and now El Paso and Midland-Odessa: Mass shootings keep happening in Texas and, it seems, with more frequency.
Elected officials, like Gov. Greg Abbott, have vowed to do something.
“The time for talking is over,” Abbott said after the El Paso attack on Aug. 3. “The time for action began today.”
Abbott convened a series of public safety meetings in August, and just last week he issued eight executive orders aimed at streamlining the reporting of suspicious activity to identify potential mass shooters.
